Today we’re learning how The Chapel hairdressing salons was founded on a vision to help the hairdressing industry evolve. By listening to what women universally disliked about visiting the salon, The Chapel has set out to create a different type of experience where each individual receives the care and attention they deserve.

Joining me for this conversation is The Chapel’s Co-founder, Amanda Faith and two members of The Chapel team, Colour Specialist from the Tunbridge Wells salon, Symon May, and Stylist George Oughton, based in the Marlow salon.

Each of our guests shares their own personal experience on how and why the salons is a unique destination, a natural gathering place, with its own individual atmosphere that benefits both guests and stylists.

Plus we get some great knowledge on why The Chapel instead of being restricted to booking a specific style, treatment or hair colour for guests, each stylists works by time. It’s refreshing and inspiring to hear, especially if you’re looking to explore a new approach to how we work as a hair professionals in 2022.

So sit back, listen in and make sure to take notes. It could change the way you work forever!
